We have visited this church before for a reenactment, and chose to experience it again this year. The church dates back to the 17th century, and an active foundation group has found enough generous donors to put on a new copper roof and to continue to offer special historical programs. My favorite is the, "Give Me Liberty or Give Me... More

Richmond, Virginia, is filled with Civil War history but St. John's Episcopal Church at 2401 East Broad Street is a statement about the American Revolutionary War. And it is very important, too. It's worth a visit. The oldest church in Richmond, St. John's was built in 1741. It is the site of two important conventions in the period leading to... More

We walked from our hotel up the hill to the church. It is a must visit, stirring in its historical relevance that feels alive today even after centuries. The day was hot yet the breeze blew on the hill and through the neighborhood making the area a different universe from the rest of the city spread out below.

St. John's located in old Richmond makes you feel a part of the history. If you are lucky enough they provide re-enactments in the church. What a grand experience to have a fellow senator right next to you standing up to talk. A marvelous experience and a site to be remembered. Check out the days of the showings. The church... More

Great tour and the reenactment of Patrick Henry's "Give me Liberty or give me death" oration is awesome in the summer

We had a great 4th of July celebration experiencing the reenactment. The actors were amazing and the audience was drawn into being a part of the debate,

Go in and get a brochure guide. The windows alone are a treat- see where Robert E. Lee worshipped. A lovely old church

Even though there is some roof restoration going on, this wonderful historic church is open with excellent interpreters, not just the reenactors during the summer! (although Patrick Henry is quite the guy, I must admit!!) Lovely grounds, interesting gift shop and LOTS of places to eat within walking distance, not to mention Libby Hill Park, the view that named Richmond!

It was a raining fortress behind huge walls. It did not look inviting...and in a very busy part of the city. I wanted to see the wood and cemetery but I wouldn't suggest visiting it right now with it surrounded by scaffolding and such! We'll try again, next visit!

Attended this reenactment on 4 Jul. They depicted the delegates coming together prior to the Revolutionary War. They encourage audience participation. Great program for all age groups. At the closing, they read The Declaration of Independence. The reenactors are available afterward for questions and picture taking. Really made the 4th special for me. Advance tickets can be acquired from St... More
